You know a few days ago I left a comment on a friends blog where she'd written about the tree cutting for the upcoming Christmas celebrations and the pine scent in the house. I wrote a long comment about how the tree was pretty and the smell must be heavenly but that I dont think it was the right to do killing for a few weeks of splendor..Moreover how I would not like the carcass of a once beautiful being which could have been saved - during all the festivities/the season in my living room.
Then I deleted or rather edited the comment and even though felt guilty feeling fake send the edited one. Because I felt I would not only be hurting her sentiments but a whole lot of other people's too.
But this is exactly how I feel. Even though I wont be celebrating this year due to personal reasons but every year I have a fake one at my place on X'mas and it looks more beautiful than the real one..
Why? Because of it one tree is still standing outside...
